IAE Volunteer Event

Farm Volunteer Day

July 12 @ 9:00 am 12:00 pm

Please join the Institute for Applied Ecology (IAE) at the IAE Farm for a summer volunteer day! We’ll have trays of Willamette Daisy (Erigeron decumbens) plugs that are (just) germinating and will need to be thinned down to a couple of seedlings per plug. We will use tweezers or small scissors to remove excess plants from the plugs—and possibly move those seedlings to plugs that haven’t had germination. We will also be weeding some areas of the farm for a project associated with restoring Marys Peak.

Please RSVP to Evan Lasley at [email protected] if you are interested in attending this volunteer event, and so we can have enough tools and chairs for volunteers. We’ll have tables and chairs set up in the shade for people to work at and will provide all of the tools to get the work done. This job requires some dexterity, but is not physically demanding! Even helping out for an hour or two would be a huge help.
